For the past several years Dennis Kimball has served as President of the Madison Christian School Board. He remains a board member, but last night marked his final meeting as President. He has done a fine job.
Dennis shared something that was extremely thought-provoking. I personally was touched by what he said and appreciate how his words were filled with great and sincere humility. He said this: “Anything good that has happened as I have been Board President, God did it. Anything I have done wrong or poorly as Board President, I am completely responsible for that.” Then, he said, “But God has taken even the things that I have done wrong or poorly, and used them for good.” That’s exactly what the apostle Paul is getting at in Romans 8:28 – God working all things together for the good for those who love Him.
Interestingly enough, I read a very similar statement this morning by Kaleb Kaltenbach. He wrote: “Whatever leaders do while they have authority, God brings good out of the good and even good out of the bad.” Beyond a doubt, the critical thing is that any of us who are privileged to be in a position of leadership are fully yielded to the Lord Jesus Christ and following the direction of the Holy Spirit.
Thank you, Dennis, for your service. Elaine Brisker is going to be assuming the mantle of the Presidency of the Madison Christian School Board. Please pray for her as the leads in his important way.
